Argonne X-Rays Used to Help Identify a Key Lassa Virus Structure

Lasss_Virus_900px.jpg

Research done at Argonne National Laboratory’s Advanced Photon Source was vital to the process of identifying the structure, which provides a guide for designing a Lassa virus vaccine. Lassa virus is endemic to Africa and kills thousands of people a year; it is particularly deadly for pregnant women.

Pregnancy Problems Not Necessarily Tied to Zika Viral Load or Dengue Fever

Zika viral load and the degree of Zika symptoms during pregnancy are not necessarily associated with problems during pregnancy or fetal abnormalities at birth. The presence of antibodies to previously acquired dengue fever also is not necessarily linked to abnormalities during pregnancy or at birth.

A team of scientists in the Pacific Northwest has solved the 3-D structure of 1,000 proteins from more than 70 organisms that cause infectious disease in people. The proteins come from microbes that cause several serious diseases, including tuberculosis, Listeria, Giardia, Ebola, anthrax, C. diff., Legionella, Lyme, chlamydia and the flu.
